Pot Roast Mushroom Soup

Got some pot roast left over? You cannot go wrong using it in this rich and flavorful pot roast soup with mushrooms!.

Servings: makes 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon thyme, chopped
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup flour (or rice flour for gluten-free)
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups pot roast, cooked and shredded
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
  1. Melt the butter in a large sauce pan over medium heat, add the onions and mushrooms and cook until the mushrooms have released their moisture and it has evaporated, about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic and thyme and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Mix in the flour and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the wine and deglaze the pan.
  5. Add the broth and beef, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
  6. Mix in the parsley and remove from heat.

I put a serving of garlic mashed potatoes in a bowl, then ladle this over the top. That's it. Done. 
I love this recipe so much, I skipped making regular pot roast, and instead make this! Everybody asks for this recipe of mine more than any other... that should certainly say something for it don't you think?
